Question about 1991 GMC Suburban
I have the calipers off and I can't seem to get them off. This is a 92 3/4 ton 4x4 suburban wth the big block.
Another trick is to take a blow torch around the center hub where the rotor meets it and where the lugs come throught the rotor as well. Works better with oxy acetylene, but a standard propane one will work just as well. You need to get it really hot and hammer on it while doing it.

Some factoy rotors have small tapped holes in the rotors that are meant for you to screw small "push" bolts into. These screws push against the back of the hub and force the rotors out and they pop off. You just need to make sure you know what bolt size to use and pick a couple up from Lowes, Home Depot, etc...
Slowly screw both of them in evenly and that will keep the rotors from trying to come off unevenly. If that happens they may bind up and be even more difficult to remove.
If your rotors do not have these small bolt holes drilled in them, you are looking at a battle. They will have to be pryed off, or beaten off with a hammer. Sometimes you may be able to get a steering wheel puller to fit on your rotors and use it to pry them off, but I bet you are looking at some banging.
No matter what, you will want to spray some penetrating lubricant onto the center hub where the rotor meets it and where the lugs come throught the rotor as well...this may ease the process.
I hope this helps a bit...I just went through the same process about 3 weeks ago...Good Luck!
